Why visit The Netherlands?

Visionary architecture, vintage-meets-contemporary fashion and interiors, street markets selling rainbows of fresh flowers, haring (raw herring), caramel-filled stroopwafels (caramel-syrup-filled waffles) and cheese, and borrel (‘drinks’) at canal-side cafés are all reasons that people love The Netherlands.

But above all The Netherlands are especially known for its spirit. If something doesn’t exist, we will design it, build it, manufacture it, recycle it, craft it, launch it (the Netherlands is one of the world’s hottest start-up hubs) and make it a reality. There’s a sense that anything’s possible here (and it invariably is).

In this presentation we would like to show you a glimpse of why you should visit The Netherlands. Let us take care of the organisation so you can enjoy all that our country has to offer!

  • Vibrant cities
  • Exclusive event venues
  • Inspirational meeting environments
  • Unique restaurants & cafes
  • Activities: from creative & cultural to adrenaline
  • Our people getting things done
  • BE our VIP

The hotels of supreme grandeur, the contagious night-life, and the outstanding cuisine are some of the plus points that make visitors want to visit the archipelago and return time and again.

Valencia – Art, Technology and Paella

  • A beautiful Mediterranean destination
  • The birthplace of the real Spanish Paella
  • Many Restaurant and Venues for different sizes of events
  • A Great Climate nearly all year round
  • Perfect blend of style, an Ancient centre full of history and a very modern area near the River
  • The best of the Mediterranean Flavour!

Valencia can be a city of clichés: the light, the moon, the gun-powder, the paella, the flowers, the fallas… they are keys which attempt to explain what words cannot tell. It is necessary to visit and get to know Valencia to verify that centenary traditions live together with modernity; that sea and city are compatible; that the green color of farms can be kept together with a modern urban scheme; that Valencia is unique at night and during the day.
But the capital of the river Turia is more than that. In addition to the innumerable attractions which the city has had for years, now there is a series of showy infrastructures such as the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (City of Arts and Sciences) and the Museo Príncipe Felipe (Prince Philip Museum) which, as they are located in this environment, are linked to culture. Valencia has put the icing on the cake, although it will not have a rest and will go on decorating its succulent presentation.
Valencia used to be a nice provincial City, but after the “Americas Cup” and the Formula 1, its become a very International, brilliant and great place where to organize any kind of Events and Conferences.
